Rodger Cuzner's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas:' Liberal MP Delivers Annual Spoof (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

MP Rodger Cuzner had the House of Commons chuckling on Wednesday with a "Twas the Night Before Christmas" political spoof.

Although, if you listen close, you can also hear the boos and jeers of some less-than impressed Conservatives.

The Liberal MP for Cape Breton-Canso made jabs at the Tories' F-35 fiasco, Labrador MP Peter Penashue's expenses debacle and offered praise for interim Liberal leader Bob Rae.

Here's the full text:

'Twas the week before Christmas and things were a mess;
The bulging new deficit had the P.M. under stress;
"These numbers are awful, I can't believe them myself;
"Nigel, I need some answers, go get me that elf";
But the Minister of Finance could not shed much light;
He told the Parliamentary Budget Officer to go fly a kite;
"These cabinet expenses, we have to cut them and grind them;
"Tell the minister from Labrador, if anyone can find him;
"We should be roasting chestnuts and decking the halls;
"But the opposition just wants to be busting our robocalls"
Things got even worse than bad meat that's infected;
Transport Canada layoffs left Santa's sleigh not inspected;
Christmas would be scuttled like the F-35 plan;
Three years of that BS got flushed down the can;
Santa needed a saviour, someone decked out in red;
A wily old veteran with white on his head;
He called in a favour, they inspected the sleigh;
The member for Toronto Centre just saved Christmas Day;
There were presents under trees and smiles on kids' faces;
He did a great job as Santa on an interim basis.

This isn't the first time Cuzner has delivered a holiday rhyme. Watch his merry attack from last year below:
